Ice Blue

Vince Top (similar here under $40)// Paige Denim// Jack Rogers Sandals// Straw Tote, old (similar under $15)

When I spotted this ice blue sheer blouse a few weeks back, it was love at first sight!  The color was sooo pretty, I had to have it!  I knew immediately I would pair it with these white cropped jeans and my favorite Jack Rogers sandals (which, by the way, if you don’t own a pair, you need to invest in them asap…they are the perfect summer staple).  I wore this outfit for a casual dinner out for my birthday a couple of weeks ago which happened to be a great choice because I ate a lot and this roomy blouse was very forgiving!  I also plan on styling this top with my go-to distressed denim shorts for an even more laid back approach.
